Bistro Le Cep
11112 Westheimer Rd.
Houston, TX 77042
Bistro Le Cep is a great place to (re)discover your love for traditional and simple French cuisine. You won’t find any eclectic, fancy dishes here but, instead a return to the pleasant classics that helped French cooking rise in culinary popularity. An extensive list of wines is sure to have the something ideally paired with your meal.
Begin your culinary voyage with the escargot appetizer or obligatory Vichyssoise; continue with a steak au poivre or the canard à l’orange, a broiled duck breast, before you have to face the tough decision between mouthwatering desserts. Whether it is the creamy mousse au chocolat, the caramelized apple tarte tatin or an almond crusted grand marnier roulade, you won’t regret your choice.
Le Cep is a quaint and unpretentious bistro that welcomes guests with a collection of ceramic roosters and pinewood wine racks between the two small dining rooms. The attentive service helps create an intimate ambiance and when the complimentary platter of paté and baguette arrives at your table, you may just think you're in the South of France.
